3. Randy Orton can put over another babyface

Randy Orton vs. Edge has reportedly been the early plan for WrestleMania 37 as a WWE Championship match. It would close their trilogy, which began with Edge winning a Last Man Standing match at WrestleMania 36 and was followed by Orton’s victory in the “Greatest Match Ever” at Backlash.

Both matches delivered in different ways, and fans are keen on seeing a third Edge vs. Orton match after the Rated R Superstar returns from a triceps injury.

That match could be for the WWE Title and could lead to Edge having a feel-good reign as WWE Champion, but it doesn’t have to be for the title either. Because there’s another babyface Orton could put over at WrestleMania 37 or on the road to the Show of Shows.

Keith Lee made his debut after SummerSlam and immediately stepped up to Randy Orton. He then defeated Orton at Payback, and even though he didn’t win a Triple Threat match to become Drew McIntyre’s challenger at WWE Clash of Champions 2020, he wasn’t pinned either. In fact, Orton pinned Seth Rollins off Lee’s finisher and not the RKO.

Lee vs. McIntyre is a future WWE Title feud, perhaps with Lee going over as the babyface champion on a heel McIntyre.

I’m still unsure about that, but I am sure that Lee is a future champion and top babyface, too. Lee taking the title off Orton in 2021 is an ideal way of getting there.
